Glue sniffing still an issue: Low-McKenzie

September 24, 2018 12:27 am

With the many hard drug cases nowadays, it’s important that we don’t deter our attention from the fact that children are still sniffing glue.

Save the Children Fiji says this was determined from their recent consultations with children from various communities around the country.

Chief Executive, Iris Low-McKenzie says children have highlighted this issue themselves and the organization is trying to look at reasons, why they would resort to such behavior.

”In our consultations with children, we have found the children are saying this it is still an issue and that while they can’t gain access to glue from hardware shops – they’re getting it from smaller shops. So there’s still a need for enforcement with these smaller retail shops that are selling glue to children.”

Low-McKenzie says this could be a coping mechanism for some children or an experiment that is done out of peer pressure.

The non-government organization is urging parents and guardians to closely monitor their children’s activities to ensure they don’t take the wrong path in life.
